Morality Wins

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday urged governments to ban all human cloning, including the cloning of human embryos for stem-cell research, in a divided vote that handed a symbolic victory to the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush.

Capping four years of contentious debate, the 191-nation assembly voted 84 to 34, with 37 abstentions, to approve a nonbinding statement on cloning.

The United States did not play a public role in promoting the statement. But it had worked behind the scenes, hand-in-hand with U.S. anti-abortion groups, to obtain a call for a blanket ban on all cloning...

I got this off Drudge a couple minutes ago. I think this is a huge victory, cloning should not be allowed to go on. I'm sure it's still going to take place in certain countries, but at least this shows a strong message that the majority of the world is opposed to the idea. This would've been an easy pass through the assembly had the Bush administration not decided to include the ban on cloning of human embryos. I think both these issues are something that we should not be getting into, it just doesn't seem right to be messing with this type of thing. I don't come to this position from a religious standpoint, like the Catholics mentioned in the article, but to clone what is technically life seems immoral.
